Have Wheels... Will Travel
Hopewell's Transportation Department is the best group of caring & devoted individuals any agency could ask for. Many do not realize they only operate with three people. This dedicated team is led by Transportation Coordinator Beth Orr.
Before her arrival in 2008 she spent many years driving bus for Trumbull County Schools. During Beth's workday she creates a resident event calendar, maintains our vehicles, schedules doctor's appointments, shopping trips, college courses, and airport arrivals & departures.
Believe it or not, our Hopewell vehicles traveled over 52,000 miles in 2013! Our newest addition to our Transportation Department is a 2014 Jeep Cherokee shown here with Beth, Tom Vitale & Richard Pipek.
Retired, Tom felt a need to continue helping others. He joined Hopewell three years ago & his personal preference is driving our veterans to their VA appointments.
Richard is a two time volunteer who was here from 2006-2008, after which he traveled around the US & overseas. He came back in March of 2013 and plans on staying through 2015.
Hats off to Beth, Tom and Richard! YOU ARE THE BEST!Back to Blog
